Adjust your Focus 

👣Be the change you want to see. Take the first step. Before you can make a difference to the lives of others, you must first change what is in yourself.

Allah says in the Quran,

Indeed, Allah will not change the condition of a people until they change what is in themselves.

{Surah Ar-Rad verse 11}

Everyone wants to change the world but how many of us are willing to change ourselves first?
Sometimes we’re afraid of standing up for what is right. We fear what people will think or say about us. But you should be strong to do the right thing, even if means that the people will abandon you because Allah will not leave you alone. People will come and go. Allah will remain for all eternity. Who will you put first?

Be different. Be a diamond amongst the pebbles. Many people are afraid to take the lonely path; they’d rather follow the crowd. But you cannot let people think for you; you must do that for yourself. People cannot live for you; you have to do that yourself. Sometimes, all you need is to be alone for a while so that you can put your life into perspective and figure out your place in this world. Where do you want to go in life and how are you going to get there? As you think about this, reflect on what you have prepared for the life to come.  🌎

If you want a beautiful place in paradise, you better work for it because there are others who are competing for the same place. Just like we all work hard for the best grades, the best job, the best house and cars, we should be working especially hard for the highest place in Jannah. Why shouldn’t we? In Jannah, we will live forever. Forever is a very long time. Let’s start adorning our real homes now so that we can enjoy living there forever. ❤️
